6 years ago I had an interest in photography and no training in it at all. This is back before my degree and as a nieve young man I didn't even think about being a professional photographer.
So Digital certainly has a look to it, which is slowly being taken over by people wanting a “Film Look”
That is quite a bold statement to make. Especially with the capabilities of RAW files. However, for the moment I am going to ignore RAW files (I will speak about them later on in this article). We all know of photographers from years gone by who didn't have auto exposure and took phenomenal images on film. To name a few: Fan Ho, Don McCullin, Ira Block, Annie Leibovitz, and Steve McCurry. They are in no particular order, but they all started shooting without digital cameras, and without auto-exposure. All their most distinctive shots have been taken without auto-exposure and on film.

Where to start with this... well... I am going to start some myth-busting.
